The Police Got A Blood Sample After I Was Transported To The Hospital Unconscious In New Jersey. Is That Legal?

It may have been lawfully obtained. Recent case law dictates that police are required to obtain a warrant (or get the driver’s consent) before drawing blood.

Upon arrival at the hospital unconscious, medical personnel would have had to take blood for analysis, and if police presented a warrant for an additional blood draw, the hospital would have provided it.

If you don’t know whether a warrant was obtained, there are ways to find out.

This is certainly one area where a strong defense team can examine evidence and question the means by which it was gathered.

If you have been in an accident and had blood drawn without your express consent, you may have cause to defeat a DWI charge in New Jersey.

Even if a warrant was obtained, a number of defenses exist.
